Parking Shrub Sat and Sun was the great highlight of the season for me.

He certainly didnít learn anything from brother Kurt who if you remember won the championship in 04 for Roush and in 05 was fired for being and idiot.

Not a good idea to bite the hand that feeds ya, just ask Charlie Sheen.

I don't like Shrub, but in NASCAR, punishment depends on who you are Dale, SR. was the dirtiest driver out there for years but they didn't do anything because if he had missed a weekend, the fans would have stayed home. Just like the NBA, rules don't apply to the stars. Jordan walked every time he touched the ball, but they would not call it.

Now when I raced dirt track, there were no rules.

I saw the #3 turn a few cars around but I dont recall, him shoving anyone into the wall under caution.

In case anyone’s interested THIS is what were talking about.

Keep in mind that this is under caution and the 33 “was” a championship contender with only 1 race to go after this. The 18 had no stake in the points title.

The day is comming when all NASCAR events will be opened with the introduction of each driver walking through a curtain and down a ramp with a huge trophy-belt slung over his shoulder, strobe lights and smoke everywhere.

They already do exactly that (minus the belt). They just donít show that part on TV.

Don't they already do that? I have never understood the fascination with Dale, jr. He has the same equipment as Gordon and Johnson and he can't win. He lacks the driving skills.

If Jr’s name wasn’t Earnhardt he wouldn’t have the ride he does now.

Marketing, marketing, marketing.

The last time I was in Daytona Florida everything everywhere was Dale, Dale, Dale (prior to his death). We ate at a Denny's down the road from the speedway and everything in there was of course NASCAR but more Dale than anyone else. The kid is riding on daddy's coat-tales, that's all it is.
